How Ionizer Operates
The ionizing unit has an intake where water is drawn into the reactor, and a discharge, where water is returned. The water interfaces with superoxide anion radicals (SOAR) which are produced from oxygen in the atmosphere. The air is drawn into the unit where it is electrochemically treated to negatively charge molecular oxygen into the superoxide anion.
The method of ionization is described as “ionization by collision” and involves reaction in a magnetic field as the air is drawn through a bed of ceramic balls with reactive minerals. The negatively charged air or SOAR is then pressurized and stored in a reservoir tank and injected into the water discharge of the system. The system discharge is also a key part of the treatment as it is designed to promote further reaction by cavitation and microbubble effect in addition to the superoxide reactions.
